External.

Makes sense, if it is detectable that it the EEPROM not there. Browsing
through the datasheet, I don't see how I could detect it; there does not
seem to be a status bit indicating if the EEPROM is there or not. There
are sw_mode pins which determine if the eeprom should be loaded after
reset or not, but I don't see anything in the register set which would
tell me.

Chris, do you know if there is a means to detect if the EEPROM is present
on the MV88E6352 ?

Thanks,
Guenter
